I'll write a quick take in a little bit, but after a nail-biting season and a nail-bed-biting last week, the Red Wings--perhaps despite themselves--earned what Ken Daniels duly noted was the team's first 4-game winning streak of the season, defeating the Dallas Stars 3-0 and setting themselves up for their 22nd consecutive playoff run.
The Wings will now fly home for the evening, pack up on Sunday and head to Anaheim to play the Ducks. The Free Press's Helene St. James reported something I've heard, and something that FSD's Ken Daniels and Mickey Redmond reported:
Not official, but #RedWings expect Games 1 and 2 at Anaheim to fall Tuesday and Thursday.
